Sacramento Kings’ George Papagiannis spoke to the show “Pick ‘N Roll” of Cosmote TV in Greece about the Greek national team and his impressions in the NBA.

“If we agree on everything, of course I will join the National Team”, states the Greek center. “It’s every athlete’s dream. Last year, there was a misunderstanding. I didn’t expect it to go like that, I got injured in my finger during practice. And I couldn’t join the NT last summer due to the Summer League.”

Papagiannis was unpleasantly surprised by the salary cap in the NBA, though that’s not his main concern at the moment. “That’s totally crazy. We got the check, saw the number, and the next day they were all gone. I don’t think about the financial part though. We will think about it in the third season. Salary Cap rises everyday”.

“Vlade Divac comes around when he sees me to show me some moves”, continues the center. “He shows me how I can improve my game”.
